Abstract submission date: Sunday 24th March

‘Genderqueer’ has come to describe a wide range of gendered identities and experiences during the past couple of decades. Genderqueer books have been published, genderqueer art has been produced, genderqueer events are held. Untold thousands (millions?) of people live genderqueer lives.

However, we believe that ‘genderqueer’ remains under-examined within the academic world. We therefore aim to explore genderqueer lives, identities and experiences from a range of perspectives both within and beyond the academic world.

We invite submissions from a range of disciplines, addressing themes that speak to, relate to, or interact with the concept of ‘genderqueer’. Relevant topics include (but are not limited to):

– intersectionality and identity
– genderqueer intimacies and sexual practices
– genderqueer performance
– genderqueer psychology and therapeutics
– queer(ing) literature(s)
– genderqueer language and communication
– genderqueer geographies and social networks
– genderqueer inequalities

Speakers will be invited to provide an informal presentation for up to 20 minutes.

There will also be an associated evening event in Leamington Spa with a variety of performers.

This is a DIY academic event organised by Dr Lyndsey Moon and Ruth Pearce. To register for the event or submit an abstract (max. 200 words) for consideration, please email r.pearce@warwick.ac.uk or l.moon@warwick.ac.uk.
